What is Faith

What is Faith?

If you believe it, you can do it!
Is that faith?
Just get your training and go to it!
Is that faith?

Is trusting someone the same as faith?
Is that faith?
Pray to God, cross your fingers and wait -
Is that faith?

He’s heard my pleas and always answers
In HIS time.
I don’t need to be like a “chancer.”
That's not faith.

He will answer in His perfect wisdom.
Now that’s faith.
Trust His wisdom- a good “rule of thumb.”
Now that’s faith.

Faith makes things possible, not easy.  

“But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.”  (Hebrews 11:6  (Amplified Bible)  
“Without faith, it is impossible to please God.”
